"Pooch-Powered" Wagon
One way to carry around all the stuff that you pick up at farm shows is to have your dog haul it for you, say Gordon Myers and wife Lora, who we spotted at a recent farm show.
  Their dog was pulling a homemade covered wagon equipped with a specially-designed harness. Gordon used a leash to guide her. The 3 1/2-ft. long wagon has a compartment under the seat that holds a water cooler for the dog. A hose runs from the cooler to a tap on one side of the wagon, making it easy to fill a bowl. A small wooden barrel attached to the wagon next to the tap adds to the covered wagon effect.
  "We take it often to parades, festivals and auctions as well as farm shows. It draws a lot of attention wherever we go," says Gordon. "Sometimes we take one of our grand children along for a ride on the wagon. Once in a while someone will tell us that it's mean to make our dog pull the wagon. However, the wagon isn't very heavy and it rides on four large rubber tires so the dog doesn't have to work too hard."
